COMD. G WESTERN FLOTILLA,
SIR:

It is my desire to dispatch the five steamers now laying here loaded with supplies for Gen. Curtis' Army at as early an hour to-day as practicable. I submit to you whether they should not be convoyed at least to the mouth of White river by one or more of the gun boats ?

Maj. Gen.

ALS, ICarbS. Charles H. Davis of Mass. was appointed a midshipman on Aug. 12, 1823, and remained in the U. S. Navy throughout his life, though achieving more fame as a scientist than as an officer. Promoted to capt. on Nov. 15, 1861, he relieved temporarily Flag Officer Andrew H. Foote in command of the Mississippi Flotilla on May 9, 1862, and was himself advanced to flag officer on June 17. On June 26, Davis wrote to USG. "I have had the pleasure to receive your note of to day. The gun-boat Conestoga is ready at any moment to convoy the steamers to the mouth of White river. I will direct Capt. Winslow the commander of the Naval detachment at that place to give them convoy as far up the river as may be practicable." Copy, DNA, RG 45, Letterbook of Charles H. Davis. O. R. (Navy), I, xxiii, 182.
